    Sprouts Farmers Market 'significantly impacted' by deflation due to its focus on fresh items

    Sprouts Farmers Market Inc. said Thursday it was "significantly impacted by deflation, which has been increasing over the last 18 months" because 60% of its sales are in fresh products. Speaking at the Deutsche Bank dbAccess Global Consumer Conference, Sprouts' Chief Financial Officer Bradley Lukow said the first quarter experienced 300 basis points of deflation, with double-digit deflation in produce. "Into the second quarter of this year, we went from double-digit deflation on cost in produce to almost flat," Lukow said, according to a FactSet transcript. Inc. announced this morning that it has extended Prime Now one- and two-hour delivery to Denver, including Sprouts merchandise. And Sprouts stock was downgraded Thursday at Morgan Stanley to equal-weight based on valuation. Analysts say they remain positive on Sprouts because it's a strong player in the natural and organic segment, and was the only food retailer it covers with positive same-store sales. "However, we now believe the shares are fairly valued relative to future growth potential," the note said. The price target remains at $23. Sprouts shares are down nearly 9% in Thursday trading, but are up more than 19% for the year so far. The S&P 500 index is up 8.5% for 2017 to date.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move. Visit for more information on this news.

    Goodyear Tire stock upgraded to 'buy' at Morgan Stanley

    Analysts at Morgan Stanley on Thursday upgraded Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. stock to their equivalent of buy and set their price target on the shares to $52, which corresponds to a 52% upside from the stock Thursday price. "The technological revolution in mobility may drive growth in miles traveled at (two times) historic levels, supporting tire volume and pricing," the analysts wrote in a note. In the longer term, Goodyear could become a transport-services firm with less cyclical revenue, they said. "We view tires as entering a period of secular growth," the analysts said. Shares of Goodyear have gained 10% in 2017, which compares to gains around 8% for the S&P 500 Index. Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Tesla shares poised for record; 'More than a car company,' Morgan Stanley says

    Tesla Inc. on Wednesday traded as high as $339.40 intraday, putting it on track to close at another record after hitting that milestone on Tuesday, when it closed at $335.10. Analysts at Morgan Stanley said in a note more investors viewed Tesla as the "nexus of shared, autonomous and electric transportation" rather than just as a car company. "The market's appreciation of applied (artificial intelligence) in real world driving scenarios/transportation has evolved significantly over the past 12 months and Tesla is part of a much broader discussion at all levels," the analysts said. Tesla has joined the likes of Inc. , Apple Inc. , and Alphabet Inc. as part of the discussions about machine learning and a multi-trillion dollar transportation market, yet it is valued at a fraction of these three companies, they said. The analysts also said Tesla and its stakeholders will have to ask whether it is "better off disrupting transport on a stand-alone basis or whether it could extract even greater value ... as part of a larger entity or consortium." Morgan Stanley in May downgraded Tesla to its equivalent of neutral and cut its price target on the shares to $305.

    Amazon's most sought-after clothing brands include Nike, Adidas and Under Armour Inc. is the second largest U.S. apparel retailer, according to the latest analysis from Morgan Stanley, and athletic brands top the list of most frequently purchased. Nike Inc. , adidas AG , Hanes and Under Armour Inc. were the most sought-after brands, with at least 20% of respondents naming them. Morgan Stanley AlphaWise polled 1,000 adults aged 18 and over from April 4 to April 12. "We expect consumer expectations around seeing more dressier and formal attire brands to grow as Amazon's private label brands gain traction," analysts wrote in the Friday note. Nearly half of respondents (46%) purchased clothes from Amazon in the last year, second only to Wal-Mart Stores Inc. with 60%. And nearly half (47%) of likely Amazon apparel shoppers said they expect to buy more clothes from the e-commerce giant in the next 12 months and fewer pieces from other retailers. Analysts say Amazon's 2016 share gains came out of department stores and Target Corp. . Clothing sales at Amazon appears to be driven by Prime members, who are 1.5 times more likely than non-prime members to buy clothes from the site. Amazon shares are up 3% in premarket trading, and up 52.6% for the past year. The S&P 500 index is up 15.1% for the last 12 months.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move. Visit for more information on this news.

    Sirius XM downgraded as recent stock rally defies slowing growth

    Shares of Sirius XM Holdings Inc. dropped 1.9% in morning trade Wednesday to a two month low, after Morgan Stanley turned bearish on the satellite radio company, saying the recent stock rally wasn't fundamentally justified. The stock close has shed nearly 9% since closing at an 11-year high of $5.44 on March 13, but was still up 12% year to date while the S&P 500 has gained 4.9%. Morgan Stanley Analyst Ben Swinburne cut his rating to underweight, given that the shares have rallied recently "despite evidence that the business is maturing and growth is slowing." He believes the late new car channel no longer adds materially to Siri's subscription base, while his analysis of the used car channel suggests growth has peaked.
